  • Deconstructing Corporate Compliance & Ethics for Single Facilities and Small Regional Chains

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 03/11/2013

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates that all nursing facilities must have a compliance program by March 23, 2013. While large companies have had compliance programs for many years, smaller chains and single homes may not have yet established a formal plan. Given the fact that compliance is a concept well known and well-practiced in most nursing facilities, adoption of a "compliance program" should not be an overwhelming task. Rather, it is a matter of identifying what aspects of the program are already largely in place and which aspects need to be further developed and then designed into a program that makes sense for your organization.
